Infineta Systems, the first and only provider of WAN optimization systems for Big Traffic workflows, today announced that Ovum, a global analyst firm focused on business and technology, has just released its WAN Optimization Technology Audit profiling Infineta’s Data Mobility Switch (DMS). Ovum Technology Audits are independent product reviews supported by conversations with vendors, users, and in-depth secondary research. Ovum’s new audit recognizes that Infineta’s DMS, a solution for optimizing multi-Gigabit WAN traffic moving between data centers, is purpose-built to support “the near-real-time movement of large volumes of data for high-speed replication and backup, extended virtualization traffic, and Big Data traffic.”

Principal Analyst at Ovum, Roy Illsley, stated, “We decided to profile Infineta’s approach to WAN optimization because it approaches the key challenges faced by the WAN optimization industry in terms of serving high-end enterprises, and provides organizations with a solution to accelerating their critical traffic between data centers. Our analysis found that Infineta’s DMS is capable of operating at the multi-Gigabit speeds expected, and needed, by applications such as high-speed replication and backup.”

“The Ovum Technology Audit validates the value that Infineta’s DMS can deliver to enterprises for critical inter-data center workflows,” stated Haseeb Budhani, Vice President of Products at Infineta Systems. “We are pleased that Ovum has highlighted the DMS’s key differentiators such as 10Gbps speeds and low port-to-port latencies in the audit.”

The first-ever, multi-Gigabit WAN optimization product on the market, Infineta’s DMS is the only WAN optimization solution designed specifically to optimize WAN traffic moving between data centers. The DMS is able to optimize data center-to-data center WAN traffic at 10Gbps wire speeds, a capability not currently offered by any other technology vendor. With its unique architecture and patented deduplication algorithm, the DMS delivers maximum throughput for high capacity WANs, increases available bandwidth capacity, and enables companies to better utilize the bandwidth they already have. Moreover, because Infineta’s DMS supports enormous traffic growth without requiring any WAN upgrades, companies can enjoy significant savings in both equipment upgrades and bandwidth costs.
